“The voices are strong…… as are the lyrics. If drink gives you courage to act, it’s not courage.” Richard Kingsmill, Triple J
Each year Triple J Unearthed in conjunction with NIDA select five of the most promising new artists from across the country to have a professional video clip directed for one of their tracks. This year Coptic Soldier’s song Liquid Company – was one of those tracks chosen.
Liquid Company boasts probably one of the best instrumental builds ever featured in an Australian hip-hop song, soaring saxophone bursts sweep over an ever building round of vocal harmonies provided by Jon Reichardt, thick keys and creative three part harmonies sift through breaks in the action.
Since releasing his debut solo EP “The Sound of Wings 2″ in February this year, Coptic Soldier has been deemed “one of the most promising acts in Australian hip-hop” by the AU Review and has been added to rotation on independent and community radio stations around the country. This resulted not only in Coptic Soldier reaching #4 on the AMPRAP charts across all genres beating out highly aclaimed pop acts such as Sparkadia and Cloud Control but also holding down #1 position in the Hip Hop charts ahead grenre giants The Herd and Urthboy.
